Speaking as a trike-only driver, I've often heard different stories about the safety of trike aircraft over the infamous "tail-dragger."
If the trike is indeed safer than the tail-dragger, why aren't ALL aircraft made in this configuration?
What possible advantages does a tailwheel have over a trike?
(And please, no macho stuff about "only REAL pilots fly tail draggers!!!" This sounds as dumb as someone saying "only REAL drivers drive without seatbelts!!!")
